FOOD – Meal Prep

This week I am working six days, so today is my day to cook my meals for the week.  I have been browsing recipes trying to find meals that include anything but chicken.  I love chicken, but I’m a bit chickened out.  😉

Rather than spend my only day off in the kitchen, I have decided to keep it easy.  This week, I will do a tuna salad salad.

If yScreen Shot 2017-03-18 at 8.35.56 AMou have not tried this “mayo”, holy moly, it is awesome!  I am not a fan of mayonnaise, but sometimes need it for recipes, and this is an amazing alternative.

To make the tuna: I used regular tuna in water.  I added cucumber, carrots, pineapple chunks, and olives to the tuna.  I mixed the tuna with Vegenaise non-dairy mayo, and added a tiny bit of pineapple juice for some sweetness. I sprinkled some non-dairy vegan cheese on the top.  I added a lemon wedge because I love a spritz of lemon juice to give my food a zangy pop! I plopped a good sized portion of the tuna on top of a bed of baby spinach. 🙂

I sautéed asparagus in olive oil, pepper, sea salt and garlic.

I’ll have my standard baggie of fresh, raw green beans, a handful of almonds, and since organic red delicious apples were the same price as regular, an organic red delicious apple will also be a yummy snack.

Do you meal prep?  Do you have a favorite go-to recipe when you’re not in the mood to cook but still want to stay on track?  Please share your recipes!

    • Looking forward to your post! I haven’t had a moment to sit down and read so I’m hoping to tonight! The mayo is so good. It’s dairy free, gluten free.. it’s just so good to wash it off your fork and it’s not oily and loaded with garbage. My husband loves it and can’t tell a difference in taste. If you get it, tell me what you think!
